So today I called a cab today and I got a Hispanic man. We begin to talk and he’s saying how nice a day it is (it is a beautiful day) and the conversation is going smoothly and then he asks me if I’m married…
Now let’s pause there. Because I am the daughter of a NYPD detective I always peep my surroundings. I noticed the silver wedding band he had on so I hoped that he wasnt trying to hit on me.
But I told him No and he asked why. I said I dont know. Because who really knows why they arent married. If I Google “Black girl single” right now there will be a million articles from a million “experts” pontificating on this phenomenon. But ultimately it boils down to not finding the right person yet. And I just graduated from college. Whatever that means.
He asked me if I attended a church to which I said yes even though I have my problems with “church”. He turned around, grabbed my hand, looked me in the eyes and said, “God will send you a good person. God will bless you. Find someone that loves God and he will love you. But if he doesn’t love God he wont love you.”
And in that moment I felt a sense of peace and reassurance that I havent felt in a very long time. It was so genuine and spiritual. I really felt God in that moment.
I thanked and blessed him and I’ve felt glowy all day.
So thank you Jose.
